Sweet Valley Confidential Giveaway



Where were you when you first read The Sweet Valley High Series? I was in 3rd grade, stealing my sister's copies (because she was so much cooler than me!) and hoping I wouldn't get caught.

Now, they're back and better than ever. If you haven't heard, Francine Pascal is releasing a new book called Sweet Valley Confidential. It's been ten years, what are your favorite set of twins up to? Is Liz a hot young journalist engaged to pro-basketball player Todd Wilkins and planning the sweetest backyard wedding? Is Jess gracing the covers of international fashion magazines and breaking the hearts of wealthy jet-setters? After the perfect childhoods, how will the real world affect the lives of the Wakefield Twins? We'll find out soon enough.

Here's your chance to win a copy of Sweet Valley Confidential. Ann-Marie Nieves from Get Red PR has graciously donated a finished copy (when it's released) to one lucky blogger!

To Enter:
*Comment below, and let us know where you were when you first discovered the Sweet Valley High series.

  6. I was in 5th grade when I started reading Sweet Valley Twins. I was so happy when my grandma bought a box of books full of SVT, SVH & The Babysitters Club at a garage sale. I re-read all of them over & over!

  8. I don't even remember when I started the Sweet Valley books. I'm thinking it was third grade. Luckily my mom bought me a bunch but I read every one of them the library had as well. I wanted a twin so bad I made my mom get me two twin beds so I had an 'imaginary' twin.

  9. I was in grade school when I started reading the Sweet Valley High books. Every time we did the book order I got a couple and tore through them. I was so excited when I read that this book was coming out. I'm even more excited now that I know there are others :)

  12. I was probably 8 years old. My sister read the series and when she was done with the book she would let me read them.

  13. I was in grade 5, and my cooler younger sister found them first. Our mother hated that we read them; she made us read one "literary" book for every "trash" novel we read. It was fun though...made us feel like we were eating candy or something.

  14. OMG I had no idea the Sweet Valley Twins would be coming back!!! I started off reading them in grade school as well - I collected all of the books and read them over and over. I pretty much exclusively read this series. One of my teachers even told my mom I needed to branch out with my reading cause I was so addicted.

  15. I honestly don't remember when I started reading Sweet Valley High. I'm guessing junior high, cause that's when I discovered the wonderful world which exists in the library. :)

    Thanks for the great giveaway. I can't wait to discover what's happen to my twins.

  17. I was 9 years old when I first entered Sweet Valley. I was in 4th grade - had a paper route and with my own funds began the journey via the scholastic/troll book order clubs each month!

    though, i must say i had a lot of pdf errors on my chapter one and missed huge portions of it - but still am beyone intrigued! Why are Liz and Jess feuding? How did Liz finally stop allowing Jess to walk all over her? How is she BFF with Bruce?!? i mean, really. maybe I should blog about this and get another +5. ;)

  18. I think I was about 7. I was sick and asked my dad to pick up a SV Twins book from the library, but instead he picked up the SVH with "Pornstache" on the cover!

  20. I started Sweet Valley Kids when I was in 1st grade and moved on to Sweet Valley Twins, and then Sweet Valley High. I even read some Sweet Valley University. But once I got to middle school, I kinda dropped the series. My favorites in the series were the Sweet Valley Twins Mysteries (with a touch of paranormal). I watched the TV series, too.
